Oh im feeling it and craving it now… the crazy Evil closer that has been put on the field. Is it
Oh its extreme and intense.. Im hungry for more.. i cant wait to have this drill under our belts.
Its like a Hurricane that went into a full category 777!!!
This weekend started out with drill all day on Saturday. The guard was in the best mood I’ve seen us yet this year!! “I feel good!!!” Everything went pretty smoothly. We were amused that “Death Camp” day one was just a nice steady pace of drill with a slight breeze. It was probably one of the nicest most enjoyable days of rehearsal all year!
Sunday morning started out with a little conditioning . . . uh oh uniform time!! A few push ups, crunches and the ever popular lunge/across the floors were painful but felt good afterwards. . . although now I know why my legs don’t want to move!
Uniforms!!!!! The Reneguard is now into the show uniforms. I love the colors! We’re really going to stand out next to the sea of black of the rest of the corps. This week is the rush of alterations and buying whatever accessories are needed. Friday we’ll be showing off our reds for the first time!
Surprise! Peter took a break from the heat down south and joined us for Sunday. It’s rifle time!!! The whole guard is on rifle for Ricotta . . .I mean Tocatta! Sweet!! I love it! I watched the video this morning and it’s going to be so good. I’ve always hated not being intergrated with the corps enough . .well no longer!!! My first toss I’m surrounded by snares and baritones. Love it!!!! Again I love the fact that we can all spin! We’re going to be fabulous!
I was amazed at the end of the show watching the horns and drums. They are flying on the field. It’s a very powerful ending and I can’t wait for the guard to learn our ending work that goes along with the in your face ending that the horns and drums learned this weekend. Like I keep saying . . . this summer is going to be awesome.
We finished the closure yesterday. Since it’ll be on the field here in a week or so for competition, I won’t bore the reading public with a description beyond the following…
Holy freakin’ cats Batman!!!
Yeah… it’s aggressive, it’s fast, and it’s in your face O.M.G.
I think we managed to learn more drill than I’ve ever learned on the field in one day, but the corps was eating it up and begging for more. Horns and drums put music together with brand new drill and presto changego…there was a complete show on the field at the end of the day, complete with high, ringing A’s and A-flats out of the Alto line (hey…I HAVE to pimp my section, right?).
Now is the time for people to start being afraid.
…very very afraid. *evilgrin*
Tickets … for the coolest drum corps concert of the entire summer are now on sale!

WooHOO! It’s here… the competative season is here! I’ve got my uniform and horn ready, I’ve double checked the hardest of my parts… I’m ready. I know it. Now it’s just hydration, hydration, hydration… with a bit of carbo loading thrown in just to keep those ol’ energy levels up because… let’s face it… I’m not 18 any more. o.O
Regardless, my entire existance currently consists of my children and the Renegades. Morning, noon, and night…there they are impacting absolutely everything, even my creative outlets! But I have to say, how can I not be? I get to perform with some of the best musicians (and dancer/performers) out there. We’ve got a hornline that simply rings out when everyone’s locked in together. It’s amazing stuff… and within that hornline there are a number of very lovely ladies, giving it their all. Some of them are my dearest friends, all of them are GREAT people and amazing musicians!
…more zany reneart soon to arrive!
